|10th Albania Rally TICKER: Cosentino and Sina/Wittberger eventually winners.|
The 10th "Albania Rally" is nearly before history! Today (Saturday) the rally closed with the last stage of 20 kms timed section, which showed a dramatic fight in the bikes between the Czech Ondrej Klimciw (Husqvarna) and the Italian Andrea Cosentino (KTM).
Klimciw was leading the rally until Friday when he lost some times in a sheep flock. He tried everything to catch back the lost 4 minutes to the former winner Cosentino and eventually took the stagewin today - but this was not enough. As the organization as preview reported, Cosentino has won the race in the bikes with only some seconds in front of Klinciw and the Italian Christian Pastori.
In the cars, the eventually new winner will be a "senior" winner: Renti Sina and Dolly Wittberger could climb position by position after a bad start in the race and pushed their new built Toyota Land Cruiser to the top-position. Second eventually are the Albanians Dervishaj / Papuli in their small LILU 2 prototype in front of former "Rally Breslau"-winner and German Henrik Strasser with the "comeback" of his "Lila Q" Toyota Land Cruiser prototype.
In the last stage, some cars crashed after an curve but nobody was injured.
